Quietly rewriting Sector Bomb

Sector Bomb is, under another title, at present, a big fat draft. I love big fat drafts. They’ve got lots of ideas, plenty of editing…

Every One Fight: on KDP Sooner than Expected

EOF-Amazon-KDP-08-15-2014
Golly!

Kindle Direct Publishing approved Every One Fight for release on its service. ‘Service’ huh? That’s fine. $1.99 USD will grant you a fully DRM-free unlimited use version for your reading enjoyment. This is the first book in the Threads of Canor Series. I highly recommend buying a paperback edition if you enjoy this book: Subscriptions for novels is a positively silly/stupid/dangerous idea.

How to Reach Me: On a related note my KDP author page is ready, but I don’t plan on that being a primary point of interaction. In this order, depending on the volume of writing and editing: Email > Twitter > Blog > Amazon KDP & Smashwords > Everything else.

Every One Fight Retails at your Descretion

EOF-Smashwords 08-15-2014
Careful, clicking this will take you there!

Instead of delaying Every One Fight to rename it, which I considered, I decided to change the Smashwords Edition to “whatever you wanna pay” model in advance of the Amazon and KDP release, since the first sale was made when the book was available for nothin’. The Amazon Edition will retail at $1.99, with MatchBook enabled for the sum cost of nothin’.

My Stance on Amazon

Maybe it’s late to be saying this, but Bezos is a dangerous beast. Hachette hasn’t got it right either. The truth (as usual) is somewhere in the middle. For a while now I’ve been waiting with baited breath, hesitating to join CreateSpace to publish my own works. Publisher? Not as yet; this nutter’s takin’ a swing at it solo, so far.

A word about Robin Williams.

Let us not forget that for the genius he was, he also pushed people away. No one pulled the trigger; he was heard, but in the end he made the choice. We all have a list inside, and when we get to the end of it, is that last item enough to hang onto?

Resolute Gait, Wispy Child Excerpt

Eight cruisers had somehow veered into a Hauler robot dragging twelve long tons of raw NA-16 through the middle of Angel City North and right…
